Keep Tacoma’s Internet Public
October 29 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
In Tacoma we’re lucky to have a publicly-owned broadband (Click!). It’s currently in the process of being declared “surplus”, to be sold to a private, non-public company which means we wouldn’t have a non-corporate option for a service that is basically a utility for citizens. Rates will likely go up and service will go down as there is very little competition and we’ll be left with another Comcast by a different name. Oct 23rd’s hearing was poorly attended, but there is a second on Tuesday, Oct 29 at 5 pm, Tacoma Municipal Building, 747 Market St. If you agree having a public option for Internet is important, please attend and write your council representatives.
